Monday, December 10th is a DAY FOR DAVID

— filed under:

Everyone who can will be sending positive energy, good thoughts, love, and prayers towards David & Family, wishing him a speedy recovery!

oaks-shock-protestOn December 1st, 2012, David Oaks fell off a loft ladder while trying to retrieve Bongo (his cat) from a loft in his home office. An MRI as well as other imaging testing later showed he had broken the C7 bone in his neck. He has undergone surgery, and he has a long road towards recovery ahead of him.

What this means is: David & Family need our support! 

There's a number of things that we as MindFreedom can do to support him, including moving MindFreedom's activism and non-violent revolution in mental health care forward.

But we can also send him our positive energy, good thoughts, love, and prayers!
To that end, we're setting aside a special day — Monday, December 10th — as an around-the-world, official MindFreedom DAY FOR DAVID. MindFreedom members and supporters will take time out to meditate on a good outcome for David and his family, in whatever way feels comfortable to them. 

Here are some ways you can participate in the December 10th DAY FOR DAVID:

  1. Set aside time to pray/meditate on a speedy recovery for David and comfort for his family and friends.
  2. Fast for part or all of the day in honor of David (remember the MFI Hunger Strike he lead in 2003?)
  3. Write a letter or card to David and his family, letting them know you're thinking of them.
    (Cards can be sent to the MindFreedom office: 454 Willamette St. Eugene, OR 97401 or to David's house: 2000 City View, Eugene, OR 97405)

Let's send David & Family the message that we — MindFreedom members and supporters — are behind him 100%!

Dorothy Dundas

While institutionalized for three years as an adolescent in the 1960's, MindFreedom member Dorothy Washburn Dundas was labeled a "schizophrenic" and forced to undergo 40 combined insulin coma-electroshock "treatments." Dorothy says, "I experienced and witnessed many atrocities. I believe that luck, determination, and my own anger and one compassionate advocate were my best friends on the road to my ultimate survival and freedom." Through a number of op-ed pieces, she has voiced her opposition to abusive psychiatric practices. Her poster, "Behind Locked Doors," which she created from her hospital records, is used in training programs. Dorothy lives in the Boston area where she has raised her four wonderful children. She founded and is the sole driver in her "safe, friendly and reliable" car service called The Crystal Lake Express.
